This is a softer biscotti and makes a wonderful addition to a dessert plate. It uses a double cook log method to form the biscuits.
Amaretto is an Italian sweet almond-flavoured liqueur. It is made from a base of apricot and/or almond stones.
Absolutely delicious. I've made many biscotti and this by far is one of the best recipies. Granted - it's definitely "NOT" low fat or low calorie but that's what makes this cookie so scrumptious. Splurge and try this. You'll love it. I only had walnuts and regular chocolate chips and it still turned out wonderfully. - 30 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Very, very good! Definetly use the liquer, it makes all the difference in the taste! Dipped my biscottis in dark chocolate and drizzled with white. Tip: Use a ruler to help shape the biscotti: use the flat side of a normal 12 inch ruler and "scrape" the biscotti into shape on a flat (preferably cold) countertop. This way you can tell just how thick and how flat the biscotti is; if that made any sense. - 14 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Great recipe!! To make them not so soft, after I cut up the logs into pieces, I baked them a little while longer on each side. They turned out perfect. - 08 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
